Elizabeth Farr records Suites of Jean-Henri D'Anglebert
September 12, 2007
Two years before his death in 1691, Jean-Henri D’Anglebert, one of several master court composers in the service of King Louis XIV of France during his 70-year reign, published a book of original and transcription pieces for harpsichord and organ. Commonly arranged into four independent suites, these masterly works have been newly recorded in that fashion by harpsichordist and Naxos recording artist Elizabeth Farr.
The recording sessions took place at Ploger Hall in Manchester, Michigan, USA, in August 2007, and were produced and engineered by Wolfgang Rubsam. Ms. Farr's recording of Elisabeth-Claude Jacquet de La Guerre’s Suites Nos. 1-6 (8.557654-55) received an important German critic's award in January 2006.
